of these? karen greenburg, the director of the center on national security law at fordham law school, and in washington, davis, the chief prosecutor of the guantanamo bay military trials. karen, how has it become working in recent shears, those cases that have been tried stateside in the federal court system? >> these trials have gone forward without much problem. there have been a number of difficult issues, including that will stopped the trials and halted them from time to time, but not in a way that was defin sieve. juries are satisfied. and judges satisfied. and the prosecutors and the attorneys play their role. there's no reason they can't be held in civil courts, and the trial of abu maz are a is just one more way how it begins, hown the verdicts get delivered. >> now, you mentioned treatment in custody and evidence, and we can't quickly sweep by those two things. they're very big considerations when we're talking about these cases, aren't they? these men, if they come to trial in the united states, have a history. they have been held in some cases by the united states for mor
investigative reporting on cia secret prisons. on skype, karen greenberg, director of the center on national security and sebastian gork a, military affairs fellow at the foundation for the defense of democracies. welcome, everyone, to the show. adam, 10 years since everybody at abu ghraib was exposed. i remember at the time, there was public outrage. there was this incredibly high visibility in the media, in congress, and i think there was a sense of the american public that when it gets this much attention, obviously something is going to shift. has anything shifted significantly? >> i can tell you what hasn't shifted. we are still talking about quote, unquote torture. we are talking about what the american government did to these individuals in abu ghraib and more recently, what the cia did as part of this program to detainees and black sites, you know, across eastern europe and in thailand. and it seems that the government, the u.s. government, just can't escape its past. >> karen, by not escaping its past, does it continue it's former actions? >> well, i don't know if it continues its f

of and karen finney, host of msnbc's "disrupt with karen finney." welcome to you both. >> hey, ari. >> thanks, ari. >> richard, where do you want to begin? let's start with the fact that as i mentioned, this is too much of an anti-hillary conspiracy for fox news. >> look, i'm not questioning karl rove's judgment in any way, shape, or form. i'm just wondering if he's lost all his clients and needs to defend his reputation given that his last client took the country into a disastrous war. but that's not saying anything about his political judgment right now. at all. i just want to make that clear. >> karen, dr. finney, what do you think? >> well, remember, he was -- we thought he was bush's brain? so you know, now it seems like he's a little scrambled. but this is -- what rove did, it was very intentional. he knew exactly what he was doing. he essentially has done this throughout his career. so we shouldn't be surprised. you know, he mainstreamed this piece of gossip-x then you kind of try to say i didn't say -- i think i loved the first answer, which was i didn't say brain dama

now is chris fitz simon of north carolina policy watch and msnbc's karen finney. thank you both for being here. >> thank you. >> hey, rev. >> chris, why this sudden push in north carolina to change the united states constitution? >> well, i wish i knew. i think it's clearly an effort by the tea party right, one of the founders of the convention on states is one of the leaders of the tea party patriots. we've seen this kind of thing in north carolina since 2011. the first day of our legislative session in 2013, there was literally a nullification rally on the lawn outside the legislative building, where legislators attended, where the state chairman of the republican party at the time praised the organizers, and it was all about nullifying laws of the federal gott. it reminds me of dr. king's favorite speech, the governor dripping with the words of nullification. >> in the speech they applaud, but leave the meaning of those lines out conveniently. >> absolutely, and we are back now to literally talking about nullification, and it's not just state legislators, senator rand paul ca

us to let this out. >> our community is chiming in . . . karen your work with doctor's without borders, how did you turn it off? >> well, i don't know that you turn it off, but you certainly learn how best to cope with it. yeah, i think the first thing is to be aware that you are impacted by what you see and what you are doing, and then to take that time. take that time in the evening to shut down and quiet yourself or one of the biggest things that happens in the field is people tend to work maybe 12 hours, 16 hours, and to not take that downtime in the evening. >> karen what about communities that experience natural disasters? floods, tornados, hurricanes, that's got to be an entire community affected with these sorteds of traumas. >> honestly what we see -- not everyone develops ptsd from trauma. a lot depends on what was going on previously. what was their trauma, the history, their mental health in general? so we see people coming with symptoms and those we can address, and i think the key there is early intervention. if we can get to those symptoms and help them manage th
for the houston area. let's go live to karen mcginnis. what is the latest? >> brianna, we have a very dynamic and dangerous situation taking place across a good portion of texas, including the coastal areas and west central texas. we'll focus in from corpus christi down towards houston. this is where the watch goes in effect until 9:00 local time. one particular cell moving off towards the northeast, very strong. already some reports of damage associated with this. this line just to the southwest of houston and the area right around roseburg. we've seen some trees fall down on homes. also, windows have been blown out of homes as well. this is expected to move off towards the northeast at just about 20 miles an hour. included in that is the fact that there's very heavy rain associated with this. so if a tornado does touch down, more than likely it is going to be rain-wrapped. all across texas, especially central and southern regions, we have flash flood warnings and flash flood watches out. now, remember, this is severe weather season. a warning, tornado warning or severe thunderstorm warning

in the "crossfire" tonight. democratic representative karen bass of california. and republican senator ron johnson of wisconsin. let me turn first to congresswoman, if i might. i can't believe i'm doing this. but i'm going to end up quoting maureen dowd of "the new york times." now, i have to confess, this for me is a new start. she said, "especially now that we have this scary world war iii vibe with the russians, we expect the president, especially one who ran as babe ruth, to hit home runs." now, as you know, he was quoted i think in manila as saying, well, he gets occasional singles. >> right. >> don't you think that standing up to putin requires babe ruth more than a guy hitting singles? isn't this really the big leagues? >> well, i think it's the big leagues. i think president obama is used to the big leagues and i think that his leadership on ukraine has been strong. the europeans now are stepping up to the plate and clearly it's going to take all of us. it's the sanctions from the united states, but it is also the sanctions -- >> i have to ask, if this has been strong -- >> yes. >> -- what
is karen and i have diabetic nerve pain. it's progressive pain. first you have that, that feeling of numbness. then you get the hot pins. it got to the point where i felt like, almost like lightning bolts, hot strikes into my feet. the pain was, it was... i just couldn't handle it, so my doctor prescribed lyrica. the pain has been reduced and i feel better than i did before. [ male announcer ] it's known that diabetes damages nerves. lyrica is fda-approved to treat diabetic nerve pain. lyrica is not for everyone. it may cause serious allergic reactions or suicidal thoughts or actions. tell your doctor right away if you have these, new or worsening depression, or unusual changes in mood or behavior. or, swelling, trouble breathing, rash, hives, blisters, changes in eyesight, including blurry vision, muscle pain with fever, tired feeling or skin sores from diabetes. common side effects are dizziness, sleepiness, weight gain and swelling of hands, legs and feet. don't drink alcohol while taking lyrica. don't drive or use machinery until you know how lyrica affects you. those who have

is retiring. one of them is karen handel. there's probably going to be a runoff. what do you think is going to happen? the tea party going to win? >> karen handel is an interesting candidate. sarah palin has endorsed her but is she a tea party candidate? what is interesting for her is what differentiates her from everyone is she's the only woman in the primary candidate. a week ago, if you were to talk to people who knew the race, followed the race, they would have thought that karen handel would come in third. >> you could wind up in this race with two establishment candidates or tea party versus establishment. so there's going to be a run off one way or the other. >> dana, go ahead. >> well, or you could end up with a democratic senator. >> right. >> taking the seat because of all of the fighting that you all are talking about and that is certainly the state that democrats have their eye on to try to beat back the republican -- what we expect to be republican gains that could lead them to get the majority, that is the state and we're hoping that this fighting against them helps. >> and th
was in the lead. fell to second place. now karen handle is moving up. in a couple of those counties, karen handle is outpacing jack kingston by three to one. if she continues to do well, she could close the gap. she's about six points behind right now. are there enough votes there? that's the big question we don't know the answer to. we still don't know how much of the vote is out there. now, if karen handle does proceed to run into the second place and make it into the run-off on the 22nd of july, poses some problems for her campaign. she's had a real problem raising money. david perdue has no problem raising money. that could put her in a position of being at a great disadvantage when it comes to flooding the air waves with those all important ads she would have to run. jack kingston, probably better position to run head-to-head against david perdue. at the moment, david perdue is winning the challenge tonight. he's going to go to that run-off election on the 22nd. it's very frustrating how slow it is for these results to come in. we may not know until after 11:00. >> i'm looking at the results
anything good to happen under this president because he's the wrong color. karen finney is my friend and colleague. two of them. >> whoo. let's go there. >> charlie crist says i was pushed out of the republican party because of their intolerance on race. and then you have rockefeller saying some people say obama is the wrong color. revolutionary, dangerous. what is your assessment, karen? >> well, one does not have to run for re-election, so that is very freeing for a lot of these numbers. this is when you really find out what they think. for crist, it's a little bit of 50/50. i believe him, that in his heart he believes that. he's also, let's be clear, a very smart politician. he knows that he needs the black vote that's going to be critical to him for a win in this race. 50/50 i would say. >> are you calling him a politician? >> heavens, no. no, no, no, never. >> the interesting thing about charlie crist, the things that really made the republican party angry with him included holding those lines open in 2008 when a lot of african-american voters were really overjoid he had done it
perdue, a businessman and brother, i believe, of the former governor and karen handel, the three of them have emerged at the front of the pack. >> i think the fact is they've spent the most money. this is a primary that's going to spend a lot per voter and i think your numbers say about 600,000 republicans will vote and roughly $5 million to $7 million spent to buy each one of those votes. and so i think the reality is paul broun you, while having a grassroots appeal, didn't have the cash. david perdue could self-fund. kingston was supported by the u.s. chamber of commerce and karen handel was able to capitalize on very strong support from sarah palin and other tea party groups. >> when you look at this math there's a contested primary you have to be thinking to yourself, okay, what does turnout look li like? i imagine you're up in the fall as your fellow members in the legislature. the what democrats will be coming out to georgia? what number of them, what percentage do you need to come out for someone like michelle nunn or perhaps jason carter or anyone else to have a shot statewide or
and karen finney, former communicator for dnc. pleasure to have you both here. i'll start with you, robert, do you buy this politico story about hillary clinton's team calling the shots? >> well, it seems to probably be a little truth to the story that they are a little concerned because they want to protect their boss and make sure there's a democratic voice on the republican committee. i think it's great. i think it's great for transparency sake and let's remind everyone here, you know this better than anyone else, four americans died. and we still don't know all of the specific answers here. what we do know is those quote -- unquote talking points -- >> karen is making faces at you. >> karen? >> we know exactly what happened. we know all of the facts. even, what we have now is people leading this effort saying we don't know what we don't know but we're going to go find it as if to say we're going to go on the witch hunt no matter what you say. >> this is ultimately a good thing, whether there is any intimation on what should be on the committee for hillary clinton's camp, no way to veri
